    have you tried using aploader? it works good when the PIN # is unknown. go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader. it will say the PIN # is unknown but go ahead and do it anyways. it should upload your software back to the phone

    Have you tried taking out the battery and reinserting it into the phone? The same issue happened to me before and this fixed the problem.

    Hate to give you such a simple answer, but sometimes simple works...

    Hope you get you backberry up and running again. I know how devastating it can be to be without it.

    Once done downloading the OS, take the batt out of the phone and Connect to the pc, run the app loader, will show usb as unknown but should start, once started carefully place the battery back on the phone.
    From there you should be able to reload the OS, also make sure you delete the vendor.xml file.
